This place is great, the view from they outside table is nice. The food is fresh and the menu is offering a nice variety . The restaurant also offers a nice Wine list. The service is great and the place is clean. Getting there is a nice drive. Right on Massawippi lake. Will go back.

What a great hotel. The location is beautiful. The lake is perfect. The environment is perfect for relaxing. This morning we took a quick swim in the lake and then watched a family of ducks on the restaurant patio at breakfast. Service / food at the restaurant is also exceptional! Highly recommended!
